There is little doubt that things are heating up in Jujutsu Kaisen. The manga has just released Tokyo No.1 Colony, Part 13 and fans are already looking forward to the next chapter. However, it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer after Chapter 173 is dropped this week. It has been confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 175 will not be featured in the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump!
The revelation comes from the always reliable Shonen Jump News Twitter account which confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen will be taking a break in the next issue of the magazine. This means Chapter 175 will not be featured in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #11 which is set to drop in mid-February.
This is unfortunate news for fans who have been hoping that Gege Akutami's manga will not experience any delays this year. However, readers can rest assured that Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 174 will still be featured in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #10 on Monday, February 7, 2022. The series will then return in the 12th issue.
Back in June 2021, Jujutsu Kaisen went into a brief hiatus as Gege Akutami suffered from health problems and was asked to take a break. Although fans were disappointed by the hiatus, they were more concerned about the mangaka's health status and patiently waited for the manga's return. It is unlikely that this is the reason for the latest break and we're hoping that the manga will continue without any future delays.
While the manga will be taking a break, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 continues to be a huge success throughout Japan. In addition to that, a special screening of the film is set to be attended by the voice cast who will express their gratitude for the movie's success. Moreover, a special announcement will be made that could be connected to the anime's second season.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 174 will be published in Weekly Shonen Jump #10 which will be released on Monday, February 7, 2022.
